Gase should try to shove Bell down our throats on Sunday, but the QB guru will waste another talented RB.

Gase’s offense has been every bit as slow as it was in Miami. He privately blamed Ryan Tannehill and other quarterbacks for finishing dead last in offensive plays per game in two of his three seasons with the Dolphins. So, what’s his excuse for the Jets ranking 31st in offensive plays per game (58.8)?

Give him time. He’ll eventually point fingers at everyone except the person attached to those fingers.

In the meantime, Gase insulted Bell Monday likely without even realizing it when asked about the veteran’s running style.

“On certain runs, he’s changed his style and hit it more downhill,” Gase said. “Especially in the last four or five games, he’s really done a good job of trying to make sure that we’re staying ahead of the sticks… For the most part, I feel like he has adjusted his running style to really benefit us to really keep us ahead of the sticks.”

Bell’s running style is rooted in finding the best — not always the first — available hole. It’s part of his greatness. To intimate that Bell was somehow hurting the team with that approach is ludicrous and unfair to a player who has accomplished much more in his career than Gase has ever done as a head coach.

Yep! The guy is proving to be way over his head as a head coach and it speaks of dumpy franchises like Miami and the Jets that are unable to measure the individual’s true skills of managing the technical side of a football team, ie., strategies, personnel evaluation, and so forth, plus the inter-personal skills required for dealing fairly and consistently with a mixed roster of young and veteran players plus non football people in the front office. Where’s the homework? Where’s the research? What input did they get that told them this was their guy? A year or two of being around a HOF QB (Manning)? A brief stint with a spoiled cry baby in Jay Cutler in Chicago?

It speaks of the merry go ‘round of unqualified head coaches that do nothing but waste years of a franchise trying to turn around their program, and frankly I can’t really blame Gase. He is living in the right time in the league, with just enough creds, at the right age when teams are drooling over young so-called wunderkinds like the Rams guy. And of course, hungry, desperate idiot teams like the Dolphins and Jets, both with young, expensive, under performing QBs chosen by a front office desperately trying to save face.

There’s an old time saying that it’s better to be lucky than good. Put Gase’s picture next to that.
